LOOK: Texas billboard wants Houston to draft Johnny Manziel
There's a strong push for the Houston front office to draft Heisman Trophy winning QB Johnny Manziel.
After a disastrous 2013 season, Houston landed the No. 1 pick -- the chance to rebuild the franchise with one of college football's biggest stars. Central Florida QB Blake Bortles and South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney top CBSSports.com's mock drafts while Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater has also topped draft charts.
Heisman winning quarterback Johnny Manziel? Not so much. While both of our mock drafts from Rob Rang and Dane Brugler have the Texas A&M signal caller going No. 4 to Cleveland, he hasn't been seen atop many mock drafts.
That hasn't stopped the group behind DraftJohnnyManziel.com from creating that billboard urging the Texans to take Manziel with the top pick. That site also has a photoshop of Manziel in a Texans uniform. There's also a petition to keep Johnny Football in Texas because clearly NFL GMs pay attention to fan petitions when making one of the most important draft selections in team history.
